The St Kilda Football Club is on a Yawa, a journey, and we stand together as one in red, white and black.

The STKFC club are aiming to establish a number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Programs which will look to provide young people with the awareness and tools for changing behaviours through inclusive language and actions and to be more curious about different cultures.

A takeaway from the program will be that we all have a role to play in closing the mental health gap of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through living in a more inclusive society.

One of the initiatives is the ‘Point + be Proud program’ which will be delivered through the award-winning film the “Ripple Effect”, with actual recounts of incidents and the lasting effects that racism and bullying have on the receiver for life.

Content from this Program introduce new education platforms to raise the awareness of the ongoing effects of racism through storytelling, using lived experiences of sporting men and women. Program content will focus on mental health & wellbeing aligned and delivered for the key target audiences of students in years 5-12.

With real life stories and accounts of ways to help combat discrimination and the flow on effect to our mental health. Incidents don’t end in the moment … we are seeing tragic results daily as a result of poor mental health. The program will explore the ongoing effects of racism, discrimination and bullying to our mental health - ten, twenty and thirty years after the initial incident. 

Individual and Corporate donors can support the delivery of Indigenous Wellness Programs. Through St Kilda Football Club Foundation's fundraising partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation, donations to these vital programs are tax-deductible.

So please show your support by donating today.

Funding raised will continue to improve the experience and enable facilitators to be trained to deliver targeted content into schools and sports programs.
